A few weeks ago, Tom Hardy had posted and deleted a photo of Venom going up against Tom Holland’s Spider-Man. While this left a lot of fans to speculate, Hardy has done it again, and now fans can’t help but think he’s building up to some big reveal.
Check it out:

It’s actually a different image from the first one he posted, and it’s kind of curious why he would keep posting it and deleting it.

Though Venom seemed to be alone in his own universe, it was actually planned for Peter Parker to make a cameo in the film; it was Disney that had requested that they remove Holland’s guest appearance. Personally, I can’t blame Disney. I thought the story for Venom was actually pretty terrible, and it still remains to be a critical bomb despite its box office success.
If the movie did have any saving graces though, it would definitely be the relationship between Eddie Brock and the Venom Symbiote. The two kind of bicker like a man and his murderous pet dog, and the exchange is always fun to watch onscreen. Besides that, the story was standard, and a lot of the lines just didn’t land.
Hopefully Andy Serkis does a better job with this sequel, now that he’s at the helm. Let’s just hope he manages to bring the movie’s quality up to MCU standard so Disney won’t be so against having the SMUC and the MCU connect.
Venom: Let there be Carnage is set for a release on June 25, 2021.
